Shiba is!

Shiba Inu has four coat colours: Red, Black, Saseme and White.


Growth Map

The Mother Shiba become reluctant to feed the puppies as they start growing their teeth (Ouch!) We will help the puppies gradually switch to puppy food and start worming them regularly.

Becoming bolder and more adventurous ! Sometimes, could be a bit out of control~

Microchip & First Vaccination (C3) is done after week 6.

Time to go home ! Yay~

We will prepare the AKAKUMO Starter Pack (refer to How to Equip) for every owner to take home with their puppy.

2nd Vaccination (C5)  and a general check at the vet. (This service is prepaid by us in Melbourne at designated vet or reimbursed in other states at a breeder price)

A few days after the 2nd vaccination, the puppies can start taking a short walk (20 - 30min) everyday outside. Try to avoid close contact with other mature dogs.

The owner may also consider to take the puppies to attend a puppy school for obedience training and practicing social skills with other dogs.

3rd Vaccination (C5 booster) can be done. This is optional but is recommended.

After these three vaccination shots, you will only need to vaccinate your Shiba Inu once a year.
